Patriot Chest Wish List

While we have a number of wonderful items in our Patriot Chest that we can use for living history presentations, we can always use more. The more we have, the better we can give an idea of what Revolutionary War era life was like. If members of the MN SAR or others would like to purchase and donate items or contribute funds towards a purchase, here is a list of items that we would like to obtain.

Note that our wish list is considerably shortened over what it once was. This is because a very generous donation was made in late 2022 that enabled us to purchase almost everything that was on the list. But there are still a few items left that would be nice to have.

If you wish to donate towards purchasing any of the above, please contact the living history team leader at
